A 71st-minute penalty by David Lindsay put Rovers ahead at Whitestone Park but their visitors from Perth and Kinross levelled four minutes later and that’s the way the scoreline stayed.

That draw leaves manager Mikey Wilson’s side sitting 10th in East of Scotland Football League first division conference B, with 19 points from 16 games.

Next up for Rovers is a trip to basement side Hawick Royal Albert United on New Year’s Day, with kick-off at 2.30pm.
